While Siggy reconnected with her family’s Jewish roots on the Aug. 21 episode of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey,’ Melissa sat down with Jacqueline for a serious talk. You see, Melissa was none too pleased to learn that Jacqueline called her husband, Joe, during a fight with Teresa.
As we previously told you, Jacqueline had a massive fight with Teresa during a dinner date at her house last week. And it was during this heated discussion that Teresa told Jacqueline, Joe Gorga once warned her not to trust Jacqueline. Jacqueline couldn’t believe such a thing, so right then and there, she called Joe and asked him if it was true. He couldn’t exactly remember, and it had very little affect on their actual fight, but Melissa wasn’t happy that Jacqueline tried to pull her husband into their drama. So what did she do? Well, on the Aug. 21 episode of RHONJ, she went out for a bite to eat with Jacqueline and gave her a piece of her mind this week.
Melissa told Jacqueline to call her the next time she has something to ask Joe. “You don’t need to be his voice,” Jacqueline snapped back before adding, “I went right to the source.” She even pointed her finger in Melissa’s face. “After all that I’ve done for your family…” she said. Jacqueline reminded Melissa that she tried to help Teresa and Melissa “a million times” when they hated each other.
But even so, some things Jacqueline said didn’t sit right with Melissa. “Something’s just not right. Something’s off with her,” she said.
On a positive note, Teresa said goodbye to her ankle bracelet this week, so the ladies planned a trip to celebrate. The only problem — Jacqueline was also invited. Both Teresa and Jacqueline were hesitant to go at first, but after some coaxing by Dolores, Siggy and Melissa, they both decided it might be a good idea to at least get on peaceful terms with each other. We’ll see how well that pans out when they go on their trip next week.
Elsewhere, Siggy returned to her religious roots and hosted a family dinner at her house. Apparently, she gave up a lot of her Jewish traditions after marrying her Italian husband. It was nice to see her family reconnecting in such a special way this week.
Finally, Dolores started making progress on her home renovations, but it didn’t make her business partner too happy. While she was at home overseeing all the renovations, she failed to show up for work at the gym she opened. He cursed her out a bunch, and she promised to show up the next day.
Oh, and did we mention that Ashlee‘s getting engaged?! Jacqueline took a step closer to becoming a mother of a bride, when Ashlee’s boyfriend asked her to help him pick out an engagement ring. He said he knows Ashlee’s the one, so he picked out a 3 carat diamond with a simple band. It looked totally expensive, but Bravo is paying for it — right? Otherwise, how can he afford that?
